China to launch anti-dumping investigation into United States sorghum imports

Authorities investigate the scene of a fatal Amtrak train crash

China has a started a subsidy investigation into grain sorghum imported from the United States, according to a statement released by the Chinese government on February 4.

"Since 2013, USA exports of sorghum to China have risen sharply and prices have continued to drop, damaging the sorghum industry in China", he said.

China is pushing back against USA trade policy.

China is the top buyer of USA sorghum as well as soybeans, the United States' most valuable export to the world's No 2 economy. "To this end, the Ministry of Commerce chose to launch the investigation in accordance with the relevant laws of China and the WTO rules".

The ministry said it had initiated the investigation because the local industry included a large number of small growers who were unable to prepare the necessary documentation.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said the issue was an "individual, normal trade remedy investigation case".

Danny Ings did his best to calm down his teammate, who trudged down the tunnel after seeing red for the over-reaction. Adam Lallana's injury return turned into a nightmare as he was sent off for Liverpool U23s against Tottenham U23s.

Here's what the dispute is about - and why it's crucial for US farmers.

Beijing has accused United States president Donald Trump of threatening the stability of the global trade regulation system by taking action under United States law instead of through the World Trade Organisation. The National Sorghum Producers and trade group U.S. Grains Council each said they would corporate with an investigation.

The ministry of commerce said it launched the probe of USA sorghum after concluding large volumes of the grain and falling prices hurt Chinese producers.

China has used other niche farm products such as distillers' dried grains to hurt the United States in recent years. Ministers could raise import duties or take other steps if it finds the United States acted improperly. Trump has also been considering new tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

US-Chinese trade relations are "mutually beneficial", Mr Geng insisted.
